The 42-year-old brings a wealth of experience in mergers & acquisitions and transformation consulting to the firm, with a focus on the private equity sector. His track record includes working with financial investors and portfolio companies on growth strategies, transactions and post-merger integration, as well as on performance improvement, complexity reduction and operating model redesign.

At Boston Consulting Group, one of the world’s top strategic consultancies, Schmundt will similarly focus on commercial and operational due diligence (buy side and sell side), fund strategies and transformation of portfolio companies. His industry focus is mainly on companies in the infrastructure and business services sector.

It’s great to have you back and your deep, practical experience creating value for various portfolio companies will be put to good use.”

After graduating in business administration from the University of Mannheim, Schmundt received his doctorate in the same faculty in the field of corporate finance. In parallel to his doctoral thesis, Schmundt worked as a senior associate for KPMG Advisory. He joined BCG in 2007 as a project leader. 

Schmundt is based in BCG’s Munich office, one of the firm’s seven offices in the country alongside Berlin, Cologne, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Stuttgart.
